Haddington and District Community Council holds monthly public meetings to discuss matters affecting the local community and to determine the way forward, reflecting the views of the community. They are held on the second Tuesday of every month, starting at 7 pm lasting approximately 2 hours. There is usually a summer recess during July and August where no meetings are held.
These meetings are attended by elected Community Councillors, one or more of the four District Councillors representing our Wards, as well as Knox Academy and the Police. Members of the local community groups are invited to attend and to present and update or make their views known on any matter concerning the community.
Our Meetings are open to the public to attend and observe. Members of the public may forward any comments or representations in at least five (5) days in advance of the meeting to the Secretary. If discussed and a response is required this will be given verbally or in writing up to fourteen (14) days after that meeting.
Members of the public are asked to always conduct themselves in a respectful manner when communicating with members of the community council.
